In the listening room, the Cayin 88T has a big beautiful open sound that could best be described as glorious. Or perhaps striking is a more appropriate description. Ah, I've got it. Call it strikingly glorious. Yeah, that's it. Nope, that's not quite right either. The 88T sounds impressive and the characterization is certainly accurate. But it doesn't hint at the amazing sense of transparency that projects forth from the 88T. Of course that big and open sound is largely due to that marvelous degree of transparency.

It doesn't require extended listening or acclimation in order to unearth the magical qualities of this amplifier. It's immediately obvious. It's different, it's musical as hell and it's flat-out enjoyable. Within minutes of hearing it, most listeners will likely have already come to the same summation. You won't have to think about it.- John Potis

Reviewer: An Audio HiFi fan from Netherlands
Details: Great, GREAT Tube Amplifier!
Before I ordered this amp I read a lot of reviews, they were all very positive, but I didnt expect it was That good!Delivery was very fast and smooth, placed inside two boxes with plastic and styrofoam, it was delivered without a scratch!It is built like a tank, very sturdy and heavy.You almost need a crane to lift it into place (slightly exeggerated ;-)) Then the sound, it took a couple of hours to burn in, but then I loved every second of it.Basses go deep end fast, also very good high without sounding edgy.The placement and spaciousness are marvellous.I listened to the A88t with Jungson Bd1 speakers and its a great match :)

Reviewer: Ah Beng from aust.
Details: super sweet
i think half the success of this amplifier is due to it being so quiet. In triode mode, it is super sweet, it layers the sound beautifully and the sweetness of the timbres emerge. there is plenty of space between voices and instruments. i can hear a voice being composed of so many sub components with this amplifier, It is less sweet in ultralinear but more punchy, but find myself going back to the sweetness of the triode mode which has dynamism and sting when the music contains it. highly recommended.
